Helm undergoes surgery, out for rest of playoffs
The Detrot Red Wings announced Thursday that forward Darren Helm underwent successful surgery Wednesday night to repair lacerated tendons in his right forearm and will miss the rest of the playoffs.

The surgery was performed by Dr. Douglas Weikert at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Helm is expected to make a full recovery and return for next season's training camp.

Helm suffered the injury with just over eight minutes remaining in the first period of the Red Wings' 3-2 loss to the Predators in the series opener.



Quote of the Day

It was pretty unbelievable...I think (my family in France) is pretty much in front of the TV right now. I don't think I have to wake them up.
